Empire in the Middle East

Thursday, October 11, 2012 - 4:00pm - 6:00pm
Columbia University Morningside Campus International Affairs Building, Room 918

The Weatherhead East Asian Institute (WEAI) presents "Empire in the Middle East" with Rashid Khalidi, Columbia University, History, and discussant Victoria de Grazia, Columbia University, History from the series "After the Postcolonial Turn: Global Perspectives."

On the premise that post-colonialism (the theory and scholarly practice) and post-coloniality (the historical condition) have both reached a new stage, this series of informal workshop-discussions will compare the specificities of colonial histories across the globe in order to identify commonalities and differences toward the goal of a new conceptualization of those all-too-well-worn words: colonialism and empire.
